Croat People's Council of Bosnia-Herzegovina
Embassy of Bosnia-Herzegovina
Following the letter published in your pages earlier this week from members of the Serb Civic Council, we three members of the Croat People's Council of Bosnia-Herzegovina, visiting London together with them, would like to inform your readers that we view what was 'achieved' in general on 9 September 1995 with bitter indignation.
The 'Accord on Principles for Bosnia-Herzegovina', which was agreed between the foreign ministers of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and the so-called Yugoslavia, in a politically scandalous and morally unacceptbale manner rewards the aggression by Belgrade and Pale against our country, and accepts the results of the expulsions, ethnic cleansing, crimes and genocide inflicted upon our peoples. For it accepts a partition of our country confirming the 'entity' created by such means - the 'Republica Srpska' - and grants the right to develop 'parallel special relations with neighbouring countries.'
We once more warn, as we have frequently done in the past, of the invalidity of all such ethnic-territorial divisions of Bosnia-Herzegovina. Based upon the recognition of force and crimes, such 'solutions' inevitably lead in the direction of new cycles of chaos, blood, violence and war, and the definitive disappearance of the state of Bosnia-Herzegovina.
